The only thing that makes me sad about being in Savannah right now is hearing about all the snow that my friends in the north are getting. Enjoy the slopes, and the wintery walks my friends. One day, I’ll get back to you.
I really can not wait to turn this color inspiration onto a project. I’ll have to find the perfect fit, but this one will definitely be eyeing me down until I use it. What a gorgeous sunset!
Regular weekly posts will be suspended for the holiday season. I need some time to kick back and relax and spend some much needed time with friends and family. After driving across country, I am pooped, and I have not been associating with technology the way I’m used to. I’m sure I’ll amuse you with a few things in the mean while, but hold tight, and enjoy some seasonal activities yourself! I’ll be back in no time.
Above, I was able to make some of the best christmas cookies I have ever tasted! How Christmasy does that look? Baking just puts me in the holiday spirit.
And it’s done. Here is the revised and final version of AMA Natural Healing.
The premise for this project was to solve the issues associated with curing common ailments. After research, including going through the process of meeting with a chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist for 3 months every 2 weeks (Nicole, you’re amazing!), I realized that in depth natural healing that could cure was something that needed to be done one on one, and not something that people could or should take on alone. After more research, I found that certain vitamins and herbs could be taken to help alleviate common ailments when needed. I feel I was able to bridge the gap between how natural healing is marketed now, and how it should be for the general population. Natural healing is hard to understand, and that scares a lot of people off. AMA aims to make the process of using natural healing easy to understand and accessible to the general population.

Richard Mosse’s series infrared has been stunning me for days. I can’t stop thinking about this visually enticing series of infrared photographs that he took of rebel groups in the congo. You can find the entire series here.

As I’m heading off again, in a car this time, I thought I’d leave you with some pictures I took while on various flights on my trip to New Orleans. I’m absolutely terrified of flying, and cry on almost every ride, but for some reason, I still love looking out the window and watching the clouds float by. In my head I think that they’d protect us if we ever went down. Just amuse me for the time being please.
Now….Off to St. Louis!
I have the travel bug.
